Biography

Campbell cut his teeth playing poker at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. Rising from the A$2/4 Limit Hold'em tables, he quickly moved up the stakes. Plus, being exposed to Australian poker legends like Jeff Lisandro doesn't help when you're destined for the top.

After winning his first Aussie Millions ring in 2013, Campbell first cashed at the World Series of Poker in 2015. That year he finished second in the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. tournament, and followed that up the following year with two fifth-place finishes in the Razz and Omaha Hi-Lo $10,000 Championship events.

2018 saw Campbell notch up several more top-10 finishes in Mixed Game events, but the bracelet so far eluded him

2019 World Series of Poker

The 2019 WSOP saw Campbell reach five WSOP final tables and win two WSOP bracelets. The first came in Event #33: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw. Campbell became the 20th different Australian bracelet-winner, defeating David Bach heads-up.

But Campbell wasn't done yet. His second bracelet came less than a month later in the hotly contested Event #67: $10,000 Stud Hi-Lo Championship. This victory saw him top a 151-player field and win $385,763, along with topping the WSOP Player of the Year standings for the first time.

The POY race came down to the wire, and ended in controversial fashion. With Daniel Negreanu originally named the winner, it transpired that an error in recording one of Negreanu's online bracelet cashes had given him extra points. The error was rectified, crowning Campbell as the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year.
